Unlike teaching, where usually the overall day is good, or bad, or just fine... tutoring starts over every new kid I go to. So while this morning's little boy may have hid from me again (in his closet, no less), I still got a running, jumping hug from my afternoon kid. In everyone's defense, hiding boy has only known me for a week and hugging girl is my tutoring best bud- I worked with her for 2 years and she came to my wedding ceremony before she started going to a school where she'd get tutoring at school. Now I get to work with her again this summer. She still hates tutoring, but she loves me and I'll take that over running away and hiding every day. My new summer job title? Torture Enforcer- making sure children are tortured in the summer since 2007 :)
On a slightly less torturous note, today I was thinking about how I need some serious motivation to kick my butt into gear. I've been dragging myself to workout lately and letting any possible excuse deter me entirely. I know a lot of my lack of motivation has to do with my knee hurting again. So, this was #1 reason why I needed some motivation. #2 reason = tutoring. Not only is it a job that involves sitting (which is the opposite of my normal job) but sometimes (like this morning) kid's moms feel the need to bake delicious smelling coffee cake that I smell for an hour straight and then have to accept when they offer it to me at the end. Yum. So yeah, so many reasons to be more motivated about my workouts.
Then, BAM (hit by a bus), I read Amber's blog and she talks about daily mileand I'm like facebook for fitness? That's what I need to stay motivated. It will be cool to see graphs, or whatever they do of my daily workouts, and I can't get any graphs without actually working out. Yay! So far I have two friends- Amber and Morgan, so.... join daily mile and let's be friends. Then, if you don't see my workout for awhile you can send me threats and bribes, as in "we will not be friends anymore if you don't get off your bum" or "Kelly I promise you a nice, cold Bud Light if you get off your bum" etc. Ready, set, GO!
PS. I went to hot yoga today with Caroline so you don't have to start the threats... yet.
